Matthew McConaughey has reportedly sold photos of his new son for $3 million. The 'Fool's Gold' actor and model girlfriend Camila Alves - who welcomed Levi, their first child together, earlier this week - are said to have signed a deal with America's OK! magazine to publish the first pictures of the little boy.

The publication has also secured the rights to the couple's wedding, if they ever tie the knot. Matthew's spokesperson refused to comment on the deal. Meanwhile, the actor's mother Mary Kathleen said her son was "over the moon" by the birth of his child and has a new found respect for Camila after witnessing what she went through.

She said: "I think it's excellent that men are allowed in the room when women give birth. He loves Camila, but now he really sees how strong she is." Matthew's brother Rooster recently revealed he was thrilled his 38-year-old actor sibling has had a son.

He said: "It's good to have a boy the first time around. You can get away with dropping them a couple times, and they'll still be OK - you can't really do that with a little girl!" "He's probably a bit tired right now, probably been sitting around that hospital just staring at the little guy. But Matthew is going to make one hell of a dad!"
